    W.R. Schuster, Germany, mid-late twentieth century

    $ 1,300.00

    “W.R. Schuster” seems now to be a brand name on bows made in Asia. In contrast, this octagonal, pernambuco, nickel-mounted viola bow is stamped “W. Germany” on the underside of the stick by the button and has a personal provenance and history that places its manufacture firmly in the mid-late twentieth century, before the fall of the Berlin Wall. The stick is strongly made and with a weight a little over the average, will suit a bigger instrument. The playing characteristics are very good, with stability in legato passages and a decent articulation and spiccato.

    Weight: 73.25 grams

    S335 Bob Berg, Wellington, New Zealand, late twentieth century

    $ 2,500.00

    Bob Berg bows have gained an international reputation since Robert Berg took what was then a revolutionary pioneering technique with him from New Zealand back to his native USA in the mid 1980’s. There he passed on his knowledge to New Zealander Michael Duff, who has taken Berg’s carbon-fibre bow construction to a level which competes with the very best bows in this field. Berg’s early bows, made in Wellington, are, despite their prototype status, not historical oddities but fine playing bows in their own right.

    S312 “Beare” London, late twentieth century

    $ 6,000.00

    This fine viola bow was made by Tim Baker, the last bow maker to be trained and employed by W.E. Hill and Sons. Baker then joined the workshop staff at J. and A. Beare in 1984, where he focussed on bow making, bow restoration and the study of old bows. The influence of the great nineteenth century French bow makers, particularly Peccatte, is visible in this bow: an elongated octagonal section extends forward into the otherwise round stick and the head is carved in a clear, somewhat angular style. At 71.4 grams, the bow is of moderate weight, with a smooth but responsive playing action.
